DHHL Media Release: Hawaiian Homes Commission Releases 2023 Meeting Schedule

(Kapolei, O’ahu) — The Hawaiian Homes Commission (HHC), the nine-member board that administers the Department of Hawaiian Homes Lands (DHHL), has approved and announced its 2023 calendar of meetings.

Sessions will be held in accordance with Bill 220, passed by the 2021 Legislature and signed into law by Governor David Ige on July 6, 2021. Law 220 provides federal agencies the flexibility to use interactive conferencing technology for the public to view meetings online as well as remotely provide oral testimony so board members and other participants can hear testimony, whether over the Internet, a telephone, or otherwise.

HHC meetings are held as hybrid events that the public can attend in person or online. Live streaming of HHC meetings is available through the DHHL website at dhhl.hawaii.gov/live. Past meetings are also accessible via archived links at the bottom of the same page.

Commission meetings are usually held on the third Monday and Tuesday of each month, except in January and February when meetings are scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays due to a Monday holiday.

The personal meeting points will be published on the DHHL website in the course of 2023.
